Bibb County authorities are investigating a fatal accident on Jeffersonville Road in the east side of the county.

Windell Roberson, 53, of Hitchcock Road, was pronounced dead at the scene near the Bibb County sheriff's substation at Mogul Road, which is not far from the victim's house, said Bibb County coroner Leon Jones.

At about 6 a.m. Tuesday, Roberson was hit by a 1998 Buick LeSabre driven by a Wrightsville man who was on his way to work, Jones said.

No charges are expected to be filed in the accident.

Sgt. Sean Defoe, Bibb County sheriff's public information officer, said drivers should avoid that section of Jeffersonville Road until at about 8 a.m. as fatality investigators gather evidence.
